You try to be nice and you get insulted by someone who obviously runs his life with stereotypes because he is too fing stupid to use his brain. GFU.

DDDUUUHHHH!!

I'm sure everyone realizes how rare it is when the "Hop" actually exceeds the "Hype".

I, however, nominate Josh's Mom, Ms. Witherspoon as Freshman Mother of the Week. After the announcer gushed about her son's performance she came back with a quote on national television that was priceless....." yeah, but he's missed four shots and a free throw."

Josh, my boy..listen to Mom and you'll be a star!! You gotta love it!!!!

Would have liked it better if she said "Yeah but he missed two weeks of school and he can't get those back".

I would like to see BoulderHawk STFU and keep his dumbazz opinions to himself until he can post something worth reading.

I especially liked when she said what a great day it was in the city of Kansas. Kudos to her for the great job she has done raising such a fine young man...probably on her own. She reminds me of Keith Langford's mother. She was always beaming too.

You guys are missing the most important point here... a guy named Khris was Big 12 player of the week. What has happened to this conference???

Well, I guess I missed the point. What has happened to this conference?

tdub - I'm with ya, this kid should have gotten player of the week as well

And I would like to award the Big XII the Thank You Captain Obvious Of The Week award.

It's quite coveted. It's only given by posters on this site who wish to anonymously present an air of superiority over others.

Which means it's given out by the hour.

But...this is the ONE place I can come, say horrific things about other people and log off.

It was nice that Josh's mom held him to account for missing four shots and a free throw. But it would have been a little more impressive if she hadn't referred to the "City of Kansas." Didn't exactly make her look brilliant.

I do agree in part with you actorman about what she said on TV but who really cares about what was said in the long run. His mom was probably just excited to be here in person and to finally get the chance to see her son play in his first College game.

Plus she was on national TV -- probably for the first time -- with her child under a tremendous amount of hype and pressure and her reactions being monitored and gauged by media outlets both local and national. She also had something like 9 family members there with her. She was put on the spot to answer questions with all of this going on around her (not to mention her emotions running high) and handled herself, in my opinion, very well. It appears as though Josh is lucky enough to have a very engaged and level-headed mother.

But I suppose she can be graded by one simple slip of the tongue like she's running for president. That seems fair.
